Apple, plum and cinnamon skillet pie
Delicious, warming and simple to make - it's also great to prepare in advance for a dinner party.
Ingredients:1 tbsp of unsalted butter 5 large cooking apples, cored and cut into slices 5 plums, stoned and cut into slices 200g of honey 300ml of water 1 tsp of cinnamon powder 1 vanilla pod, split in half 1 sheet of ready rolled shortcrust pastry 1 egg yolk
- Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
- In an ovenproof frying pan, fry the apples and plums in the butter over a medium heat. Add in the honey, water, cinnamon and vanilla and turn down to a simmer. Cook for 7-10 minutes or until thick and sticky. Allow to cool fully.
- Cut strips of pastry and arrange over the pan in a lattice style, alternating under and over to create a woven effect. Decorate with leaf shaped pastry around the edge.
- Brush with egg yolk and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to sit for a few minutes before serving.
